COOL: Chilli Jam fan

Posted on June 21, 2011 by


a right sticky mess

The room goes silent. Everyone looks at me. I know it’s my turn, but how did I get here? I take a deep breath….OK, here goes.

‘My name is James and for the last 6 months I have been using Chilli Jam. Sometimes four, five times a day. With anything; cheese, ham or even alone on one of my fingers. They’re long fingers too.’

*APPLAUSE*… ‘But I’m not here to recover. FUCK you 12 steps?’ *mental grin*

It wasn’t always this way. I used to have perfectly normal food habits. I liked a bit of chutney and cheese but I never went overboard. I never ordered extra chillies or anything excessive like that. Then I went to the Lake District, stepped foot in a banging farm shop  and booom. Looking back, that muddy threshold was my Rubicon.

Now I buy blocks of cheese, slice ’em up nice and dunk, dunk, dunk, dunk DUUUUUNKKKKK!!!!! until a spicy fear sets in that someone’s gonna walk in on me.

I’m so obsessed I’ve started dreaming about the stuff; rivers of sweet, tingly chilli jam winding through dripping rainbows of, yep, more chilli jam. Wanna hear fucked up? I witnessed a devastating car crash the other day and the pavement was covered in litres of chilli jam! I mean blood, no, chilli jam. I don’t even know anymore.

I just never thought I’d be a pavement licker.

Anyone else got a COOL or UNCOOL addiction?
